Volkswagen to Expand Tiguan Lineup
Here at Stone Mountain Volkswagen in Snellville, GA, we’re big fans of the VW Tiguan. And apparently we’re not the only ones. At the Frankfurt Auto Show, Jochen Böhle, the Volkswagen head of product development, was on hand to confirm that the company will be expanding the Tiguan from a single car into an entire line of compact SUVs. Said Böhle, “We have plans for a whole Tiguan family over the next two to three years.” This announcement comes as no surprise, as Volkswagen has sold more than two million Tiguan automobiles since debuting the compact SUV in 2007.
The first new offering from the line will be a larger, seven-seat version of the Tiguan with 4.33 inches of added wheelbase, a longer rear overhang, and a wider track. There will also be a coupe that will ride on the standard Tiguan wheelbase, but will feature a more steeply-raked roofline and redesigned rear. There are also rumors that an off-road version will hit the road as well.
There’s no need to wait for the rest of the lineup to get behind the wheel of a brand-new Tiguan. The 2016 VW Tiguan features a 200-hp turbocharged engine and 6-speed automatic transmission with Sport mode, both standard, as well as an optional 4MOTION® all-wheel drive and sport-tuned suspension. Inside, you can take advantage of the 40/20/40-split folding rear seat, and can fold down the rear seats to make the most of the 56.1 cu. ft. of cargo space. If you’ve got even more to store, you can add in a fold-flat front passenger seat and sliding rear seats. A touchscreen sound system with 5-inch color display and a rearview camera system add to the list of great standard features.
And don’t forget about the wide selection of pre-owned VW inventory also available at our Volkswagen dealership.
